Hello! We are a couple looking for a housing exchange opportunity: you provide the carriage house, converted barn or small cottage with land/animals that need tending and we provide the energy, time and sweat equity for either a complete exchange or a reduced rent.
Having just returned from a year abroad working on small farms and eco-hospitality ventures in Italy, Croatia & Scotland, we are excited to settle down in the Central NJ area to close to family and friends.
A little about us:
Ael is a food justice advocate with Slow Food International and has a background in film, farmers markets and food. She also is a goat herder, a former DJ and a great cook!
Most recently I (Allison) traded in my restaurant apron for a beekeeping suit and cared for bees on rooftops in Philadelphia for an international beekeeping company. I also have an extensive background in gardening, herbalism and hospitality services.
We have been together for over 13 years and make a great team. We’re hard working, responsible and fun and have lots of references, from both former landlords and employers, at the ready.
If your interest is piqued or you know someone in need of land assistance in exchange for housing, please reach out! Thanks!
